Bluetooth & Connectivity Help Center / Re: Blusoleil disconnecting
« on: February 09, 2012, 08:10:48 PM »
in demo-mode Bluesoleil + Wiimote worked fine.
Then I purchased the full version (7.0.376.0) and my Wiimote stays connected only 2 seconds and then it automatically disconnects (status: idle).
Tried reinstalling the software but that didn't help.

Any ideas what to do?


Hi Rob,

The latest version of Bluesoleil should be Bluesoleil 8.

If you are using Smoothboard, you may want to consider using the Microsoft Bluetooth Stack instead as you are able to use Smoothboard's SmoothConnect to help you with the Wiimote connection.

This can be installed by removing your existing Bluetooth drivers and using the tool from

Wiimote Smoothboard / Re: Pressing the buttons on the Wiimote
« on: February 01, 2012, 08:44:01 AM »
We are considering putting a Wii IWB in one of our classrooms but have one question.  AFAIK you need to press both buttons on the Wiimote each time the system starts up.
Firstly is this true, because we would like to mount out wiimote on the ceiling thinking this will reduce blind spots and shadows and also less likely to be 'adjusted' by passing students.

Having to prees buttons on it mounted to the ceiling would make life more difficult!

Anyone any experince of this issue?

Thanks in advance


You can consider using a remote control with a power supply for the Wiimote.

With the Red Sync button on the Wiimote pressed continuously, when the Wiimote is powered on, the Wiimote will be in discovery mode and can be connected by SmoothConnect automatically.

Therefore, you can use the remote control to switch on the Wiimote when SmoothConnect is looking for the Wiimote.

This is used by most users who have the Wiimote fixed at the ceiling.

The device is sold by some of our resellers such as listed on

Are you using SmoothConnect for connecting the Wiimote?
If yes, you may want to check what is the device name detected in Windows under Bluetooth devices.

Smoothboard has a Presenter mode feature where you are able to use the Wiimote like a wireless presenter to control the computer from away from the screen.

You can also use a stationary IR Source placed at the screen, to control the cursor with the Wiimote.

I've been trying all day to figure out how the hell to point the wiimote at two IR light sources in order to navigate, and everything I can find conflicts, is incomplete, or links to instructions on sites that don't exsist!

I try connecting using the standard bluetooth setup, which says it works (but the lights keep flashing).

WiinRemote can't find it,
GlovePIE with Wii IR Mouse (LED Version) just flings the curser to the top left corner of the screen, making stopping the app;lication nearlyu impossible.
Even SmoothBoard 2 doesn't do anything except make the 1rst LED light up on the Wiimote

All I want to do is test The Wiimote's ability to be able to navigate Windows 8 on a television (windows 8 is in a VirtualBox machine on WIndows 7)


If the first Blue LED on the Wiimote is lighted up, the Wiimote should have been successfully connected to the Smoothboard software.

You should be able to use your Wiimote with Smoothboard to control your computer by setting the software to Presenter mode.

Same issue here, I am using an HP Pavillion dv6 laptop, have a rocketfish dongle for bluetooth and the wiimote plus.

I have installed the wiimote using the steps in the help guide, when I open smoothboard it detects the wiimote (i.e. it says found:1 connected: 0) but it does not connect. Some of the issues which I am having:

- Everyone in the self help section suggest that their are green arrows on the icon once installed, I see no green arrows.
- Once installed the lights do not continuously blink, they turn off. I've gotten them to stay on and continue blinking, but when I open smoothboard it skips the connection screen and launches smooth board and gives me the error message.

On my HID list there is no WiiMote or Nintendo  RVL-CNT-01, just bluetooth HID device and HID compliant game controller.

I've tried installing the wiimote two different ways,

1. Open up my bluetooth devices, detect (1+2 held here) I click next once the device is found, then I click don't use code and finally I get a messages saying  (Successfully installed, Bluetooth HID device installed).
2. I double click smoothboard, when the connection screen comes up I press sync then press 1+2, this installs the device but then smoothboard is autolaunched and again I get the same error message.

Any help on this would be great. Btw my wiimote is apparently the newer model, its black and has wiimotion plus inside (if this matters), I don't own a Wii nor do I care for one so please mind my ignorance if this is a standard wiimote.

There seems to be some issues with newer models of the Wii Remote Plus that have the device name as RVL-CNT-01-TR.

You may check this by going to your Bluetooth Devices after connecting the Wiimote. This can be found by clicking on the Bluetooth icon in the system tray.

If it is shown as above, you may want to try with another Wii Remote.

Do you ship to Serbia?


We do not sell the hardware but most of our resellers do ship internationally.

You may contact one of the sellers as listed on our site at

Hello,  Trying to roll this out at our school.  NONE of the nintendo wii remotes will connect to any of our imacs (10.6.7) or macbooks (10.6.4 - 10.6.7) automatically with smoothboard.  When I set up a new room I have to do the following on a fresh computer/wiimote.   Install and run darwin remote.  It will find the wiimote right away (under 6 seconds) on EVERY mac and then I close darwin remote.  Only then can I open up smoothboard and it will find the wiimote and its mac address and from that point on will always pair up fine to that system. 

Its almost like darwin remote is being used as a bootstrapping program to get the mac address of the wiimote into the system and from there on, it works.  This is fine for rooms where the teachers system and wiimote will always be the same, but for public rooms, not being able to just press 1 and 2 and have it find it puts a kink in things.  Why would darwin remote work 100% of the time to find a wiimote and smoothboard fail 100% of the time to find the wiimote unless darwin remote was ran first on that system?


Hi Dan,

I have emailed directly to you the reply.

Hi to all. I am new here and have recently bought wiimote in order to play with smooth board or other software that enables me to draw on screen using wiimote. But since I am using windows 7 x64 ultimate, and many people have problems with their bluetooths, I would appreciate if anyone could say what Bluetooth to buy from here:

these is not an advertisement, and I am sorry if it looks like one it is not supposed to :(

Hope some of these cheaper models can work normally, I really don't have much money for throwing.

Thank you all, and any.


You may want to purchase a Bluetooth adapter that is sold by one of our partners as they do sell the Bluetooth adapters that use the Microsoft Bluetooth Stack.

I did try using that Microsoft stack.  It installed, smoothconnect came up saw the controller, connected, but would hang on the install.  Then it cycled through finding, connecting, and hanging on the installing.  At the end of the day, I shut my computer and went home.  When I tried again the next day, the Microsoft stack was no longer working, and I could not get it to reinstall on my computer.  I see this:

Creating restore point ...Done.
Patching bth.inf ...Done.
Installing driver ...Done.

Wait wait Windows installs Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerator and then click "Next" to test your bluetooth adapter.
I click next and then get this message: Sorry. It seems installation wasn't successfull. Unable to contact your bluetooth adapter.  


You may want to unplug the device and remove all the existing drivers for the Bluetooth adapter.

You may want to check whether the Bluetooth Support Service and HID Input Service are running too.

I am having the exact same problem with the Asus adapter and the broadcom software.  Anyone know how to fix this?

Have you tried using the Microsoft Bluetooth Stack and connecting with Smoothboard?

You may use the tool from to install the MS Bluetooth Stack.

Wiimote Smoothboard / Re: tracking is lost after 10 mins or so
« on: January 09, 2012, 07:24:22 PM »
My wiimote with smoothboard works ok for about 10 mins but then it loses its tracking. The tracking is off by about 2 inches to the right, ie I have to point the pen to the right 2 inches of the spot I want to point at. It's pretty annoying. I noticed someone else had an issue as well. I have not moved anything, it has been this way since I purchased the software in November 2011. I have been recalibrating each time this happens. I have great great tracking utilization of 44%, the wii is mounted off the ceiling and my projector is 2 feet behind the about 2 feet below the wii remote.

The only possibility that causes the tracking to be off is if there are some changes in the position or orientation of the Wiimote, Screen or Projector.

A very small change in the orientation of the Wiimote may the cursor to appear at the wrong position like your case.

You may want to try to use a tighter Wiimote holder.

No Wiimotes Found in the HID Device List
same problem what to do man...

Are you using SmoothConnect to connect the Wiimote?

The IR LEDs are mounted on a cardboard sheet, which was placed on a table. The LEDs cannot move at all, so they can't be causing the movements, especially since all leds move independently

The distance between the Wiimote and the middle LED (the red one in the video) is 80cm, give or take

How can the Wiimote move by itself? The vibrations of the Wiimote have been turned off at all time.

Any small vibration on the table may cause the Wiimote to move. From the video, it seems to be moving quite a lot. Maybe it is due to the library used which amplified the error.

It is common for the IR LEDs to be detected at around a certain value with deviation of several pixels as the IR LED itself is not a single point but a large blob.

Maybe you want to try to take a look at the IR points, via another library or you may use Smoothboard to see the points.

Boon Jin

How are the IR LEDs placed?

How far are the IR LEDs from the Wiimote?

Placing the Wiimote on the table by itself may also cause the Wiimote to move by itself from the vibrations.
